We are teachers, students, parents and education supporters. We have come together because for too long, our students have been packed into crowded classrooms, our educators have had to buy their own basic supplies, and our children have watched as beloved teachers leave the profession, or our state, because they cannot afford to support their own family.
We need to get back to investing in our students and in our state's future – which means asking those who can afford it to start paying their fair share again. It is time for Arizonans to take the power into our own hands. We need to provide immediate solutions to our school funding crises. It is time for us to act.
